Topic: A Mac is a better computer for a calm lifestyle, while pc is not
sigerz

Con

I accept.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Mac is expensive while you can get a Pc can be cheap. So if you want to be calm about your financial status GET a pc
(which makes you calmer) if you have allot of money and want to "think" that your "calm" because you wanna look cool.
A pc is much more pratcal to use for work related things such as programing or just office work, whilst a mac is good for editing but a pc can do that just as well.
if you want to be calm and relaxed and dont get worried about you finance get a pc not a Mac their expensive and arent pratical.

Debate Round No. 1

Seeing that my opponent did not read the rules, clearly stating that round 1 was acceptance, I hope the voters will recognize this and penalize the con for it. I guess we will just play the rest of this debate by ear.

P1: Macs are impenetrable by Virus's

When you own a PC, you constantly have to be downloading virus-protection software, and running weekly virus sweeps that can take up to hours. This is less "calming" then having to worry about no virus's at all. If you have a "calm" lifestyle and you need not worry about going to any websites that could potentially harm your Mac, then maybe that can lead to a "calmer lifestyle."

P2: Macs last longer

All Mac's (At this time) consist of an Aluminum casing. This aluminum is much more durable than a PC's plastic casing. PC's also consist of moving parts, like fans and disc drives, which can easily break, and are hard to replace unlike Macbook's who do not consist of any moving parts at all.

P3: Anything Windows Can do Macs Can do

Macs are combat able to run windows (using a software call boot camp) so if there anything any "better" on a windows computer, Mac's can still run it on.....well.....a Mac. Can windows do the same, I don't think so.

P4: Programs

Any Mac you buy comes with the following programs
Mail
Contacts
Calendar
Mac app store
FaceTime
iPhoto
iMovie
Gargeband
iTunes

Unlike PC's who don't come with any of these programs, or any programs at all for that matter except for Internet explorer, and quicktime player (and a few other useless one's)

Lets counter shall we

1. "(Con) A Mac is expensive while you can get a Pc can be cheap"

Why do you think PC's are cheap, the PC's quality lacks the quality of a Mac. PC's are plastic, Mac's are aluminum. making it more durable.

2. "(Con) A pc is much more practical to use for work related things such as programming or just office work"

Mac's can run anything a windows can, plus the things it can already run on a Mac. The amount of virus-free, and miscellaneous software you need to constantly run on your PC can cause a harmful working environment. Running these programs might get in your way of an important paper you need to right soon. If you had a Mac you wouldn't have to worry about any of these. Less worry, less stress, more calmer (lol)

3. "(Con) whilst a Mac is good for editing but a pc can do that just as well."

I'm not really sure what whilst means, but I'm going to assume it means while. PC's consist of the worst editing software I have ever used. I do a lot of filming and editing, and let me say that "windows editor" or what ever its called compared to iMovie is like comparing Bob the builder to Chuck Norris (or whatever terrible to great comparison) But let me say this is half an opinion, so it does fully counter this statement.

4. "(Con) if you want to be calm and relaxed and don't get worried about you finance get a pc not a Mac their expensive and aren't practical"

Hold on let me just copy and paste my entire debate to this part, Could you possibly tell me why they aren't practical. Thanks

Good luck in the next round

Read before debating: This debate that Macs are better as lifestyle computers, meaning that Macs aren't big programming computers, and that they are better if you job is not computer related to computers (programmer, engineer)
